Pine Tar Game Baseball-6

FILE - In this July 24, 1983 file photo, Kansas City Royals' George Brett, center, is restrained by umpire Joe Brinkman after his bat, held by umpire Tim McClelland, right, was ruled illegal because of pine tar beyond the legal limit on the handle during a baseball game against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in New York. Brett hit a home run that would have won the game against the Yankees, but was instead called out. Royals manager Dick Howser, left, also argues the call. It's hard for Brett to imagine that his infamous "pine tar game" happened 30 years ago this week. (AP Photo/Rockland Journal News, Robert F.
